Simularity Update 097
I probably should have waited until tomorrow to do this update, it’s a big one, but I finally decided to just go ahead and do this now. I finally, after a LOT of studying the tuning files and cross-referencing countless files, have figured out how to add custom wants and fears. I have updated a handful of my traits with the new wants and fears, but I plan to update more of the traits very soon. So, here’s what’s new and updated! (You can also check my Mod Updates page for a briefer list.)
The biggest update is to my Bipolar Trait which I added custom wants for each stage/episode so there is a set of wants for when your Sim is manic and a different set for depressed and so on. I also created a brand-new custom fear called “Fear of Abandonment” for the Bipolar Trait. It seemed the most appropriate type of fear to create for this trait and I may use it for future mental health traits. It happens randomly during some episodes and when the Sim is being left alone.
Next up, I created a set of custom wants and a new custom fear called “Fear of Losing Technology” for my Techie Trait. The fear may popup when your Sim with this trait sees broken tech objects.
I created a new set of wants for my Agoraphobia Trait and added support for it to trigger the base game’s Fear of Crowded Places and Fear of Being Judged since those seemed perfect for this trait and therefore no sense of making new fears. I did the same for the Artist Trait with a new set of custom wants plus I added the “Fear of Being Judged” to it like I did the Agoraphobia Trait.
Thanks to the translator MushyLatte (who has a Patreon page of other translations), I have added Spanish translations to the following mods: Paranormal Trait, Archaeology Custom Preference, Fabrication Custom Preference, and Reading Custom Preference. In regard to the Reading Custom Preference, I also updated it to fix some broken icons.
Finally, I created a new mod that fixes one of the littler problems with the High School Years EP. The Fix Broken “Clean Whiteboard” Want does what it says and fixes the want from appearing when you play the Teen aspirations since the want cannot be satisfied. It goes well with my earlier posted fix mod of Stop Messing with Phones.
That’s all for now. See you next time which will probably be late next week.
